The Susan Jenness Trophy

 The Susan Jenness Trophy

The Susan Jenness Trophy is awarded by the TT Supporters Club to the most meritorious lady performance at the previous years TT. Unfortunately due to the Covid pandemic the presentation to the 2019 winner has been held over until this year.

The recipient and second time winner is Maria Costello who said her Mum would be thrilled that she had won it.

At TT 2019 Maria competed in the Lightweight race and as a newcomer in both Sidecar races. She finished 25th in the Lightweight race with a race average of 109.377mph on a Paton.

In the sidecar races she and her Isle of Man passenger Julie Canipa finished 21st in race A with an average of 101.841mph and 17th in race B with an average of 102.671mph. Averaging over 100mph is no mean feat for a Sidecar Newcomer.

They were three very impressive performances by Maria who thoroughly deserved the trophy.

The trophy is donated by Mick Jenness in memory of his late wife who was killed marshalling at an off-road event in the UK.
